    IE Spell http://www.iespell.com/ (Freeware) adds a right click menu , that can be used to check your spelling when your posting in WP , a nice free little addition that doesn't require the programmers to add a spell checker to the actual program :)

    Dana,
    EEEEEEEEK! It's an IE tool! RUN, DANA, RUN! Run as fast as you can! Don't let it suck you into that browser void that comes from Redmond, WA. Please! We beg of you!
    :)

    When I used IE I used IESpell all the time, it's a great tool. For a while I even went back to IE to spell-check my posts. Now, as you can tell from my terible speling these days, I haven't found anything as good for Mozilla or Firefox. Any suggestions? Thanks for the tip Dana.

    Just a thought, Opera added spell check support in 7.5 P1. Works perfectly and uses Aspell.

    Okay, here is a test post to see if the spelling checker works.

    Okay, here is a testt postt to see iff the speling cheker werks.

    The top line was corrected by the spell checker. The blockquote was the original text I typed in.
    All you have to do is type your post, and while the cursor is in the text area box, you right-click and up pops the GUI. It was sized really large when I first opened it, but the next time it was just fine.
    Pretty slick!

    Hmmm...all I can get on the spell check window is an hour glass. :-(

    Hmmm...did you back up your database? ;)
    I assume that you shut down FF and then re-started?
    Uh..what else...
    You backed up the database, right?? ;)
    Have you tried re-installing over top of the existing installs? Don't disable or uninstall, just install.
    I'll see if I can find some threads where there is some troubleshooting.

    I'm having the same issue. I installed the first plugin you linked, shut down, restarted, then installed the second...shut down/restarted again. I just get the hourglass...I'll try re-installing over the top of the existing plugins to see what happens.

    Hey guys and gals,
    I found a thread where somebody said it would only work for them if you installed this one FIRST and then the other two.
    Give it a try.

    How can I unstall them and start over? I can uninstall Spellcheck_3_5.xpi in the options of the extension, but the composer one is not listed in the extensions.
    Thanks!
